New books are on the shelves at Ackworth Community Library after a £4,500 grant was secured.

Lafarge Tarmac provided the grant to buy the latest bestsellers, more children’s books, a new computer, computerised till and water boiler at the Bell Lane library.

Librarian Helen Shaw said: “As the library exists solely on grants and fundraising by volunteers and members, this grant has been fantastic in allowing us to update some of our computers, offer faster internet connections and a wider range of programming options, as well as updating back office equipment and giving us the great opportunity to buy new books.”

A craft fair to raise cash for the library, which has 730 members, will be held at Ackworth Village Club on Saturday, October 18.
